I am a free-range (i.e., independent) scholar who works in the private technology industry as a Director of Software Development for a SaaS startup in Dallas. I received my PhD in English from the University of Texas at Austin; my dissertation focused on cognitive literary theory and medieval English, French, and Latin literature. For almost six years, I worked as the Academic Technology Specialist for Stanford’s Division of Literatures, Cultures, and Languages, where I was a member of the Stanford Libraries’ Center for Interdisciplinary Digital Research. In that role, I collaborated with faculty on digital humanities and instructional technology projects. I also taught courses and workshops on literature and digital humanities and conceived and developed technology projects.
